Joe Scarborough, on his morning radio show Morning Joe, which is evidently simulcast live on MSNBC just like Imus’ show was (irony!), wants to know if Fred Thompson’s wife “works the pole.” (Transcript below.)
SCARBOROUGH: Have you seen Fred Thompson’s wife?
[Congressional Quarterly writer Craig] CRAWFORD: Oh, yeah.
SCARBOROUGH: You think she thinks she works the pole?
CRAWFORD: That’s what a Hollywood career will do for you, I guess.
SCARBOROUGH: What do you mean?
CRAWFORD: You get wives like that.
SCARBOROUGH: I mean, look at that guy. God bless him, I love his voice. But I mean, you know. He ain’t Robert Redford in “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.”
CRAWFORD: Well I would like to see him back into politics because I think he’s a lousy actor.
I’m wracking my brain trying to think of what Scarborough possibly could have meant by that, and the two options I’ve come up with are:
1) You think she [fucks him]?
2) You think she [is a stripper]?
Both of them are completely fucking inappropriate. I’m really just so sick of this bullshit I could puke.
